I see the USS Dauntless bridge
All the founding members of the Federation are on Admiral Janeway’s bridge–a Tellarite, Andorian, Vulcan, and humans. I wonder if there’s a specific reason for that, or if they’re just trying to be representative.
One would expect a show designed to introduce children to the franchise would need to cover off all the founding species.
Yeah, I think that’s right. Introducing kids to some of the core species. Maybe they’ll meet a Klingon! Seems like the franchise has jettisoned the Klingon after the Disco Klingons were poorly received. I think they don’t know what to to about it. Maybe reintroducing Worf will give them some courage to move on.
I think I read the producers said in an interview Klingons and Romulans are coming this season too, so pretty exciting if true.
And I think the Discovery Klingons are done. They already moved on when we saw the Berman era Klingons on Lower Decks (another reason why I love Lower Decks ;)). And as you said, Worf still looks like Worf in Picard too. So I think those are gone, most people just didn’t like them. They just looked…not Klingon. ;)
Maybe they will show up on SNW? I seriously doubt it at this point but prepared to be surprised I guess. If they showed the traditional Klingons on Discovery along with the new versions, I don’t think there would’ve been so much scorn, but it is what it is now.
And it’s easier to have aliens more present in animation instead of makeup or VFX or Puppetry, etc.
I don’t think it’s for a specific reason.
Wow this looks very promising!
I wonder will Janeway and the Dauntless crew be in the rest of this season’s episodes now? I really hope so! I’m glad to see the kids wearing the uniforms more often too.
This is a ‘bit off topic’ but I went back to read the original announcement for this show here and it’s funny reading how bothered people (me included) were over the ‘lawless teen’ description of the young characters. I think we all thought they were going to act like rebels with chips on their shoulders and they ended being some of the most lovable and adorable characters in the franchise. Tendi could be on that ship lol. Well maybe we will find out Murf is with Section 31 or something (there have been WORSE ideas on these shows!).
“Well maybe we will find out Murf is with Section 31 or something (there have been WORSE ideas on these shows!).”
Please don’t tempt fate.
This is one of the reasons I don’t have my undies knotted up over a musical episode. There’s enough depth to the franchise now that exploring different ways to tell a story doesn’t mean that shark jumping is an automatic outcome.
Agreed. Far from a musical guy myself but actually think it will be fun if Trek tempted one and I do have a feeling it will happen on SNW. That show is light and playful enough to do something like that. Maybe it will be a crossover musical with Lower Decks like Flash and Supergirl! ;D
In fact, while we’re at it, why not have Flash and Supergirl guest star as well in that SNW ep, plus Casper the Friendly Ghost too for good measure. And when is Bullwinkle going to show up on Lower Decks?…please MM, make that happen ASAP!!!
Unfortunately, I think it would cost too much for the rights to those characters.
Yes, the Roger Moore era of Star Trek would be the place to do it.
I don’t understand this reference? Was Roger Moore in Star Trek?
And I’m not PUSHING for a musical lol. Alex Kurtzman is the one who wants it, so blame him. The guy is hated enough, trust me if it happens and it’s bad, well, then people have a reason to hate him more. But I still think it will be better than TATV at least. Actually they should’ve just let Bakula sing in that one, that guy has an amazing voice!
I’m just willing to give it a chance because I’m a Star Trek fan and an optimist :). Seriously what else is there other than not watching? And evvvvveryone will be watching lol.
For us James Bond fans, the Moore era represented lightweight plots, gags and winks at the audience…it’s considered considerably inferior to the classic Connery Bond era.
OK, thanks. But to be honest SNW and LDS are kind of lightweight in that regard. I mean they aren’t DS9 or DIS, right? But I don’t look at lightweight as inferior…just lighter. It’s why I like them so far.
And musicals make people happy!
You don’t speak for all Bond fans. The Connery era ruled; the Moore era also ruled, just in a very different way.
Actually the very first Bond movie I saw in the theater was a Roger Moore film. It was Octopussy (I still can’t believe to this day that name stayed lol). Personally I liked Moore as Bond but it’s like a lot of things in entertainment, including Star Trek, people usually like whatever they are introduced first in a long running franchise. I don’t think I’ve seen all his films but I have seen nearly all and liked most of them. He was a lot of fun and charismatic, even if he wasn’t the best.
Everything is inferior to the classic Connery era.
Well, my undies are so knotted up from the dumb-ass idea of a musical ep that all you can is my ass cheeks. :-)
This “second half of the first season” is such BS. Just call it the second season, because we all know that is the case.
Weird thing to get worked up over? If they ordered 2 twenty episode seasons, why call the second half of the first season something it’s not?
Because there has been a freaking 1-year break. LOL
I am not worked up, but I do think it is humorously moronic to call it the first season still. It’s just silly.
Precisely, if only 10 episodes are being released per year, then those 10 episodes are a season.
Great show, the artwork colors are vibrant, and it kind of has a VOY vibe to it.
From the onset, I’ve always have felt that Dal has this kind of, ” Aladin ” (90’s Disney) attitude to him, which suits him well.
Have to say my favorite character is the Tellarite, Jankom Pog.
Always talking in the 3rd person…, ” Jankom Pog thinks this will end badly…, but what the heck, Jankom isn’t getting any younger….”
The Voyager vibe is a big reason I love it! And it’s a great gateway show to get kids and/or new comers into Voyager if this is their first.
And yes Jankom Pog is hilarious. “You know Jankom swore he never be eaten alive….again.”
Ton’s of Janeway — cool!
Yeah, Mulgrew is more than covered with this series…not really seeing a need at all to double-dip with ANOTHER series for her, despite her obvious campaigning for a second paycheck.
And sure, I get that Janeway/Voyager fans want her in another series, but I’d like to see them use that next series slot for a DS9-derived series instead. They can only have so many series’ coming out, and I don’t think there should be two Janeway series’ at one time given there is only so much time left to revisit the DS9 characters given the actor’s ages.
Well, the problems are:
1. DS9’s story has been told. The Dominion was vanquished. We admittedly didn’t see Bajor admitted to the Federation, but we saw Kira in a Starfleet uniform, which to me implied Bajor joined offscreen shortly after Sisko disappeared. And most of the crew scattered all over the galaxy in “What You Leave Behind”; I fear it would come across as a “very special episode” to reunite them (admittedly, PICARD season three faces this risk, too).
2. Two of the most important characters would be gone — Avery Brooks doesn’t seem game for reprising his role, and of course Auberjonois died. Eisenberg, too, although Nog is perhaps less essential. You could recast (I’ve often thought Mahershala Ali would make a phenomenal Sisko) and come up with plausible in-universe explanations as to why the characters look different. But dramatically, it ultimately seems contrived to me, particularly if the series is aiming for nostalgia, like most of NuTrek. It’s just very hard to recreate DS9 without its lead actor.
There’s also the Jadzia problem (please, no more contrived resurrections; it cheapens everything), and the fact that Worf is more part of PICARD and appears to be a late-life convert to pacifism.
Good points all. But let’s say they want to do another power character-based series like Picard. If that is the direction they are heading, then I would much prefer a Star Trek Kira series to a Star Trek Janeway series. Better actor, better character. Plus, like I said, we already have a series with a Janeway focus anyway, so another one really isn’t need in my opinion.
All that being said, I really don’t think they should keep the old character focus, but instead do something new. But if they have to do this, my vote is for Kira over Janeway, and it’s not even a close competition.
And to round out a couple more classic characters to pair with Kira, I was thinking Jake and Bashir — post Picard. And then mix in some new younger characters, unlike Picard, which is not almost all the original actors.
Kira, Jake and Bashir, mixed with new cast members. The DS9 station doesn’t necessarily have to have the central role it had during the original series. I’m sure they could get creative and come up with a valid story arch to build this around. This could be much more original versus just new Janeway starship stories, actually.
Competently produced, but feels the most like demographic-honed, management-directed corporate product than any Star Trek show or film. At least such fare as Into Darkness and Disco are a bit eccentric. And at least Lower Decks shows the personality of its creator.
